October 17 is the day that the world focuses on ending poverty. It's an issue that we at The Ursus Institute know is a direct link to many human trafficking victims who are in vulnerable situations due to poverty. We wanted to remind everyone of the link that poverty has with human trafficking. Our efforts of combatting human trafficking at The Ursus Institute include efforts to help people in impoverished situations improve their lives so they are less vulnerable to being lured into human trafficking. We also help the victims of human trafficking get back on their feet and learn skills needed to provide for themselves and shelter so they have options that lead them away from the people that kept them as modern day slaves.
Our fundraising event, Fall for A Better Tomorrow, is being held on November 7 from 6:30pm-9:30pm at TapHaus 49. We will have 3 key note speakers, a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, dinner, and drinks. We are still looking for sponsors, attendees, and auction items for the event. Please let us know if you are interested in learning more about how to get involved with the event or interested in connecting with someone at The Ursus Institute regarding our anti-human trafficking efforts.
